Summary: Win32 installer should add python's directory to system path

Initial Comment:
Win32 installer should add python's base directory to 
the system path to allow executing Python.exe 
anywhere. If you use an editor like SciTE a hotkey (F5) 
will start your script with a command line like:

pythonw.exe your_script.py

The system path must be set correctly to allow this 
command. This setting must be done on each machine 
with python installed. In a while classroom with 30 
machines it can be very cumbersome. An installation 
option would be useful in most cases, especially 
with "yes" default.
